My dad said that to me LB - blimmin competitive dads!
This thread did make me laugh though!
I remember one at my daughter's playgroup. One family took the whole thing so seriously - mum, dad, daughter (even at 4) all turned up in full running kit (might even have been spikes !). Mum and daughter duly won the spoils. The dad got absolutely hammered by a dad who just pitched up from work in his suit and work shoes - he was slipping all over the place but still won. The competitive dad's face was a picture !
We'll gloss over where I finished !!!
At my daughters sports day they were asking for women to take part in the mum's race. One of the other mums said ' Go on Ika, you run don't you ? ' To which I replied ' Not in a push up bra, I don't ! '
Seemed like a good excuse - I was actually scared of coming last as I'm more of a distance runner than a sprinter.
Lack of appropriate underwear didn't seem to worry the mum who came first, mind you. And don't the dad's take it seriously - shirts off and elbows out .......
